Title: MANAGING I/O OPERATIONS IN A STORAGE NETWORK
Abstract:
Various aspects for managing input/output operations in a storage network are described. For instance, a method may include applying a hash function on a target data object to calculate a hash key for the target data object and identifying a target storage bucket for the target data object based on the hash key and a hash table map. The method may further include reading a data object key for a data object stored in the target storage bucket and comparing the data object key and the hash key to determine a match. The method may also include determining that the data object is the target data object if the data object key and the hash key match and reading the target data object from the target storage bucket when there is a match. Some methods can be performed using a single remote direct access request.
